FAA Safety Plan (excerpt from FAA)
The below is important information excepted from the FAA Website. Please refer to their website for more information.
FAA: Special Management Procedures for Arrivals and Departures
FAA: Safety Plan for Super Bowl LVII
During periods of heavy demand, pilots should anticipate Traffic Management Initiatives including, but not limited to, reroute, miles-in-trail, altitude restriction, ground stop, and Ground Delay Programs.
When a Ground Delay Program (GDP) is in effect, aircraft must depart within 5 minutes of their assigned Expect Departure Clearance Time (EDCT). If unable, pilots must advise ATC and request a new EDCT assignment.
Traffic Management Initiatives are designed to provide equitable access to airports and airspace. To maintain program integrity and minimize delays, airborne changes of destination to area airports will not be accepted, except for genuine emergencies.
Pilots should anticipate a Temporary Flight Restriction (TFR) in the Phoenix area on Sunday, February 12, 2023. Typical TFRs limit the availability of certain operations, including glider operations, flight training, and unmanned aerial system (UAS) operations. Specific procedures described on this website and/or contained in an associated Notices To Air Missions (NOTAMs) may be revised or unavailable at the time of the event, and access to some airports may be restricted. Pilots are encouraged to check NOTAMs frequently to confirm they have the most current information.
TFR information is published by FDC NOTAMs, normally 3 to 5 days prior to the event. TFR NOTAMs and graphics are available at the FAA TFR website.
VFR Arrivals & Potential Holding
VFR arrivals may expect lengthy delays and potential holding during peak traffic periods. VFR advisory service within the airspace of Phoenix TRACON (P50), Phoenix Tower (PHX), Scottsdale Tower (SDL) and Albuquerque Air Route Traffic Control Center (ZAB) will be on a workload-permitting basis.
File flight plans at least 6 hours, but not more than 22 hours, prior to the proposed time of departure. This is required to ensure Traffic Management Initiatives (TMI) reflect authentic demand. If a TMI is necessary, filing early may minimize your assigned delay. Duplicate flight plans (same time/call sign) to the same airport or multiple airport destinations are subject to removal from the system and may result in increased delays.
Airport Parking Reservations
A reservation program to facilitate ATC handling and ground services will be in effect at participating Arizona airports. Reservations are administered by local Fixed Base Operators (FBOs). Contact the FBO at your Arizona destination for reservations and additional information.
All pilots/operators are strongly encouraged to contact their servicing FBO prior to departure, to ensure availability for both overnight parking and passenger pickup/drop-off.
